Ok no he definitely isn't.

That being said I think he is OUR most underrated player. No one ever gives him any credit but he's always bringing energy, throwing crushing hits, and surprisingly playmaking EXCEPTIONALLY WELL. He can score too if given the opportunity and ice time. It's amazing how much his speed has increased.

Vs the pens he was magic... money in the bank on that pass that lead to our second goal. While Crosby was just admiring his play on the ice.

Tonight he got a chance vs the Twins and looking at that pass it seemed like Weise was the long lost third Sedin. Phenomenal pass!!!

Yes I know Santorelli is underrated too, but he's well documented. Dale Weise is going under the radar.

WEISE IS AWESOME. Definitely one of my favourite players now. Hope he continues his good play and gets more ice time.

Dont you all agree?

All joking aside, Weise has looked like a fringe third liner under Torts. He's flourishing to his NHL potential, and has been making smart plays every game. I notice him for the right reasons now.

I'm waiting for that Tom Sestito poster to come in here and try and argue that Weise is the liability out of the two of them.

Flown under the radar but potential is and always has been there.

Weise was a scorer in junior and even at AHL level but being placed in a bottom-six role requires to learn how to crash around, play gritty, be defensively responsible, etc. Very hard to do all of that AND put up points in six or so minutes he was/still gets.

Reminds me of a guy who lit it up in Portland and Manitoba but had a few hard years in his transition to the NHL.

Honestly I think Sestito has played pretty well too. Much better than last year.

Weise is strangely under appreciated on this forum for reasons that I cannot fathom. He strikes me as an unsung type, a waiver acquisition making relative chump change who carved out a regular spot through hard work and determination.

I will always root for Dale Weise, wish more people would.

He is a quality 4th liner, happy to see him producing and maybe over the next few years he can become something more.

Yes, Sestito has played well this year. Not enough credit goes his way around here either.

Say what you will, but Rome was a solid, contributing member on the best team the Canucks ever had. I'd take him back in a second.

Weise sometimes shows flashes of brilliance occasionally, but also tends to be a liability at times. It's mainly the fact that he's ridiculously inconsistent that causes him to be underrated.

Makes the odd nice play.
Also has his share of vacant moments.
Good speed. Hits hard.
Hands of stone that turn soft intermittently. Truly odd.
Full range of emotions player - frustrating, underdog, breakthroughs, boneheaded moments, stands up for teammates, works hard, forgets to take the puck with him at times, makes some nice passes, not the guy I want with the puck on his stick if the zone needs to be cleared...
Sometimes you revel in his success, sometimes you wish he weren't successful because it will lead to more minutes of the above.
Tough guy to really like, tough guy to dislike.
I like him. But I wouldn't mind if someone else earned his spot.

I think of him as a less offensive-upside, less reckless Torres.

Brings energy, plays body, chips in once in awhile, and has flashes of being a second liner.

There are times he tries to make the fancy plays when he should just do the safe thing and chip it out or dump it deep.

But damn that was a sweet saucer he fed to Daniel for the 3rd goal

He's been alright but he's not our most underrated player. I really believe right now it has to be Stanton. Guy is solid as hell back there.

BEST SUMMATION

“I’m not so sure he knows what’s going on. I think it’s just happening, but it was a big goal for us. I’d like to get him on the ice more.”

— John Tortorella on Dale Weise’s dangle, drop pass, taking a hit and then getting to loose puck to set up Brad Richardson. :lol:

I'm just saying that weise is a turnover machine and does try things that don't generally work for him. For once, the saucer pass connected. If he can get that inconsistency out of his game, I'd really really like him.

Weise is the better player easily, but i'm also scared when he has the puck lol. It's like Tanev v Edler. Edler's better, but more scared when he has the puck.
